    You need a player that can play AVI files. Winamp is a good one that will
    play these. The Windows Media Player should also play these. You can see if
    the AVI extension type is listed in the file types for the Media Player that
    is installed on your system.

    download `Gspot` and install it. Test your files with it. It`ll tell you
    which codec you need.

    Not being familiar with the program, the problem is likely how
    you're using the software. Since you are trying to load still images
    (jpgs) and the software 'thinks' you're trying to load video (avi), then
    your image is in a format that the software can't recognise, or you are
    using the wrong instruction to it, to import a still image.

    It's probably in your 'help' files, or on their site.
